Chelsea have overtaken Manchester United as the most hated club in the Premier League.

A survey run by the Mirror asked fans of each top flight club which sides they hate, and which they love, and the west London club came out as the most disliked club overall.

Manchester United, who won the dubious accolade last year, have been revealed to be the next most reviled side.

Liverpool are in third spot followed by Manchester City and then Arsenal to complete the top five.

West Ham Utd came eighth. Unsurprisingly, it is the Irons’ London rivals who have no time for the east London club.

Nearly 10,000 fans of clubs from across the country had their say in the annual poll.

The results weighted the opinions of each club equally, making the overall table a fair representation of the view of the average football fan.

Bournemouth came bottom of the list, making them the division’s least hated club.

Leicester were second – proving that success alone isn’t enough to make rival fans hate your side.
